I am in the final stretch of getting the sequel to Overlook (tentatively called Escape Plan) published. Before I send it off to the editor, I would like a few of my wonderful readers take a look at a draft and give me some feedback.
This novel has a bit more suspense than my other novels, so I don’t want to give too much away here, however, here is a sufficiently vague blurb:
After rashly getting rid of her husband, Kitty Haskell has to deal with the consequences of her actions. With the help of her good friend, Stacia, Kitty is finding her way to a new life post-Seth. However, Stacia’s help comes with a heavy dose of obligation. When Stacia discovers that her childhood friend and adult rival, Bitsy Magnuson-Evans, is in serious trouble as well, she asks Kitty to take Bitsy in and keep her secret. The situation gets increasingly complicated as Kitty is forced to deal with her husband’s mistress showing up with a baby in tow, supporting her own children, and the intriguing young artist that makes her weak in the knees.
If you are interested in receiving a draft of the novel, please reply to this post. Also, tell me if you would like a free copy of the first book, Overlook, for reference.

I would love to beta read for you, and yes, I need a copy of the first book also.
Thank you! I truly appreciate it. Please send me your email at elizabeth(@) elizabethhein.com so I can send you a draft copy and a link to where you can download a free copy of Overlook. Please tell me what format you prefer the draft in (.pdf, .epub, mobi, .docx). Thanks again.
Hello Elizabeth, Yes, I’d like to read the draft of Escape Plan, although I’m not entirely sure if my job as a “Beta” reader. Also, I’d appreciate a copy of Overlook. Thanks, Ann Berenbrok

Thanks for being willing to read for me. As far as what it means to be a beta reader, you are being asked to read a late draft of a novel. The author is asking the reader to point out places that they would have liked a little bit more description or explanation, any chapters that seem to a little long or a little too short, any characters that feel off, questions that don’t get answered, or any other glaring issues. The difference between beta reading and reviewing is the book is not in its final no-going-back-now shape. Changes can still be made. Chapters can still be tweaked. And, it has not been edited yet, so there are a few typos and awkward sentences that my editor will point out when she gets the manuscript.
Please send me an email at elizabeth at elizabethhein.com with your email address and preferred format for the draft. Also, I will send you a link to where you can download a free copy of Overlook. Thanks again.
